Despite not having released the full API yet, there have been more than a dozen Google+ apps for iPhone that have showed up in the App Store. From posting to multiple social networks to importing photos, these apps can do a lot!
I’ve gone through and picked the best of the best. These iPhone apps are great for Google+ newbies and junkies alike, and will definitely add a little spice to your mobile Google+ experience. These apps cover publishing across multiple social platforms, photo importing from one service to another, and dating. What?! Yes, you read that right, there’s a Google+ dating app!
This is currently my top pick for posting to Google+, Twitter, and Facebook simultaneously. It has a very clean, simple user interface, and there’s no fluff. Just connect your networks, type your status update, and choose which network(s) you want it to go to.
Post to Google+, Facebook and Twitter simultaneously! With a slick and easy-to-use interface, iStatus+ helps you keep your internet social life updated.
Social+ – $.99
While this app isn’t quite as pretty as the latter, it still gets the job done.

Google Apps Browser by G-Whizz!.. – $2.99 / FREE
This app is very feature rich, but a bit of an overkill if all you’re looking for is posting to multiple social networks. It’s got quite a long list of features, so I’ll just let you browse it yourself.
Google Apps Browser is the fastest way to use all your favorite Google apps! Get instant access to 20+ Google apps right on your iPhone, iPad or iPod–including Gmail, Google Talk, Voice and Reader, plus bonus apps like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+!
It also has a free version if you don’t want to pay:
Move2Plus – $.99
If you’re looking for a way to easily import all your Facebook albums, this would be the app to get.
Move2Plus is a powerful app that copies all of your Facebook albums, photos, and captions to your Google+ (Picasa) account without losing album structure or making duplicates. None of your Facebook or Google+ albums or photos are edited or deleted in the process.
As a bonus, Move2Plus is a fast Google+ uploader for photos and videos you have saved on your device. Create new albums, select multiple photos and videos, and upload them to your Google+ account quickly and securely.
Google+ Photo Importer – $1.99
Now this app has quite a hefty boast of being able to import 100 photos in less than 1 minute! Unlike the former app, it will access your photos from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, and Photobucket. This seems like the app of choice for photo-importing.
Google Plus Photo Importer lets you Import 100 photos in less than a minute, straight to your Google+ profile from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Photobucket.
Photo Importer for Google+ – $.99 / $1.99
Just like Move2Plus, this app only features Facebook photo uploads, but boasts a super simple process.
Photo Importer for Google+ makes it easy to import your Facebook photo albums to Google+ with the ease of one tap. Just choose an album, tap Start button and you’re done in a few minutes!
There is also an HD version of this app for the iPad:
- Photo Importer for Google+ HD – $1.99
G+ Facebook Importer – $.99
Another Facebook only photo importer, but unlike the previous ones this app supports wall photos, and tagged photos.
Google+ Facebook Photo Importer seeks to make the trasition of your memories to Google+ much easier. Some features include
- Secure Login to Facebook to get a list of albums
- Tagged Photo support to import photos you are tagged in that were uploaded by your friends
- Wall Photos support to import photos others have posted on your wall
- Super easy to use interface to make things go smoothly
- Albums are named correctly on Google+
Dating for Google+ – $.99
Although it’s doesn’t allow you to post to Google+ in any way, I thought it would be funny to mention it. This is a dating network app that allows users to connect to Google+ in order to verify they are real people.
I gotta admit, it gave me a good chuckle.
Google+ Dating is part of the large and free Dating DNA dating network service, but allows Google+ users to optionally link to their Google+ account if they want, letting other users see how many friends they have on Google+, etc. Because fakes and frauds won’t usually go to the trouble to set up a Google+ account with friends. Just knowing that others in the network are also Google+ users can give you more confidence that others are for real.
